Paralyzed Without a Chute

Paralyzed Without a Chute

Jun 20

I can remember feeling this way only one other time in my life. It was six weeks from my wedding date and all I had was a ring, a dress, and a groom to prove it. Not a single flower had been ordered, invitation had been sent, or bridesmaid had been squeezed into overpriced satin. See, I was not your typical bride that had envisioned her wedding from the age of 6. The truth is, I never really...

Bridal Poll

New York Magazine recently conducted an interesting bridal poll which got me thinking of the parts of my own wedding that are most memorable. Before Clark and I got married, we had so many couples tell us that they barely remember their own wedding day. “It’s all a blur”, they would say.

What are you doing this weekend? I’ve convinced a friend to go see The Great Gatsby with me on Saturday night while Clark hosts a Sci-fi movie marathon at the house.

This clever idea has been making the rounds on Pinterest, but every since I saw these pre-planned {and pre-paid} monthly date envelopes, I’ve been coming up with ideas to make my own. Shannon Brown made these as a Christmas gift for her husband, but how cool would it be as an anniversary or a wedding gift? Each month of the year would have a different theme and a different adventure for...

I can’t decide if these Customizable His and Hers Lyric Pillows by Three Yellow Finches are really nerdy or if this needs to be my next “just-because-I-love-you” gift to Clark. Being married to a songwriter has its definite perks. Over the years, Clark has poured his heart and soul into a few tunes inspired by moi. In fact, I walked down the aisle to the very song that he wrote...
